Avid Reader QC - I feel cheated
It’s not a romance without the happily ever after or happy for now ending. I feel cheated.
NatAnt3 - Eighty one nights
A little confusing at times and a few errors with missing words. Great storyline. Could have added more detail with other characters and had more drama for the emotional situations. Alpha comes across as a puss with his dead wives family especially the sister. More drama with regards to her actions. Interested to see what happens in the ending.
Tropigal9 - beware
This is a cliffhanger. It’s not complete. Book one of a series...
RC Reading - Yes!
Worth the read!!
NV19 - Eighty one nights
Wow.... just wow....
Kay.S84 - Amazing!
This book was so amazing I finished it in two days! I recommend to everyone. It was so great I bought the second one. You won’t regret reading it!
ajcarey713 - Great read!
This story sucked me in so well I finished both books in 24 hours! Love seeing both their points of views and all the trouble they go through to get to their happily ever after.
bex2499 - Love
I read this book in a 6 hour period. I loved it and can’t wait to read the rest in the series and many more from this author
Bluedoggy72 - What a rip!!!
Glad I dud not pay for this cliffhanger. It needed about 15 pages to resolve the problem and be a HEA.
Samantha B. Sokol - Major cliffhanger!
I could not handle the cliffhanger this story had! I wanted to continue reading to find all the answers to the all the questions! Cait is a student trying to finish her degree and make ends meet after being cut off from her father, which adds to the complex family relationship she originally had. In the process of determining options, her roommate mentions the new job she obtained with Inamorata and decides it’s her only option to get her foot in the right direction. At her first party, she meets Max and he is immediately intrigued by her and while reluctant to the situation, wants to put a spin on the typical arrangements provided. While both Cait and Max have pasts that dictate their presents, they develop feelings and support each other and make life enjoyable and bearable. When a misunderstanding occurs and people insert themselves into the situation, Cait flees although it is too late as the feelings are already there. I cannot wait for the next book and for all my questions to be answered. This was such a great read from Georgia I’m definitely a fan!
I voluntarily read and reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.
Wookiee 45 - Hutch stole my heart
4 stars for - Eighty-One Nights - book one in the Beautiful Illusions duet by Georgia Cates. As with almost all duets this book ends in a cliffhanger that leaves you yearning for more of Hutch and Lou. The author states she took beloved elements from some of her other series and intentionally weaved them into this duet. Honestly, except for a couple cameos of previous characters, this seems pretty original to me. With Georgia’s signature style of romance and sexy seduction this is one book you won’t want to miss.
Maxwell Hutcheson is in a really bad situation so a friend brings him to a party to meet the perfect girl. A girl that can give him everything he needs, wherever he needs it but it may just cost him everything when all is said and done.
Lou is a broke American college student living in Scotland with one semester left to go before she’s done with her degree. Having no money and no idea how to pay her way through school she decides to work with her roommate at Inamorata as a companion. She never thought she’d meet a man like Maxwell Hutcheson her very first night but as they say...everything happens for a reason.
BookNerd1217 - Can’t wait for book 2
It was refreshing reading a new Georgia Cates book. This isn't my typical read anymore but I will always pick up a book by this author and this duet is exactly what I would expect out of this author.
This was an easy read for me but was still full of angst and steaminess. I can't wait for the second part of this duet to see how things work out.
Starorchids - Fantastic
Any book by Georgia Cates is a book you’ll always devour and crave more. Eighty-One Nights is no exception. This story is unique, scorching hot, and consuming. I devoured this story in one day and am desperate for more. It was everything you want in a story and more. The story is so extraordinary and incredibly wonderful I may need to re-read it again ASAP.
Mbohle15 - What starts out as a contracted “Girlfriend Experience” blossoms into so much more.
Maxwell Hutcheson recently lost his wife. He’s lonely, and holding on to so many secrets, while being held to unreasonably high expectations from the people in his life. Caitriona Louden is an American living in Scotland, trying to get an education, and waiting tables just to scrape by. Both of these people have less than ideal situations they are going through. And both of these people turn to Inamorata to try to make their lives a little better. Cait as a inamorata and Hutch as a client.
From the start these two have an undeniable attraction to one another. Cait is reluctant and unsure about the arrangement that Hutch suggests, but after getting to know him she agrees to try the girlfriend experience with him. 81 days and 81 nights. A full summer with Hutch. Can she have a relationship with him without getting her heart hurt? Once his secrets come out and they start to share more and more can they keep from falling in love? It’s just a contract. It’s just a lie. It’s just pretend. Sigh.
What I will say first is that this story is a duet, so yes this book does end with a bit of a cliffhanger. I don’t mind it because honestly we get an entire story and the first part of their relationship. Am I dying to know what happens next? Well of course, but the first part is fulfilling and such a ride, that I can say I’m satisfied so far. There is a sweet blossoming relationship. There is some angst from outside forces. There are internal struggles from both main characters. There’s a timeline on their relationship that’s just looking overhead. There’s a bit of suspense and some alpha tendencies from the hero. Just all in all this is a great read. A fantastic combo of tropes/themes from Ms. Cates past work, but Eighty-One Nights still has its own new story and characters that you won’t be able to get enough of once you start.
All in all this is a great read. I can’t wait to see how Hutch and Cait’s story will complete. How things will pan out for some of the side characters, and if anything suspenseful will happen in book two!
Brunettebabygirl - Absolute Perfection!!
Between student loans and bills, Caitriona “Lou” Louden works as a waitress trying to make ends meet when her friend tells her about a mysterious business named, Inamorata. It’s like a “girlfriend experience” for rich men and beautiful women. Maxwell “Hutch” Hutcheson gets dragged to a Inamorata party by his best mate. Two strangers brought together by circumstance. 3 months is what they have together. Can they keep to their arrangement or will their true feelings for one another finally get in the way? This is a breathtakingly beautiful story and I’m in love with Hutch and Lou! Who doesn’t love a sexy Scottish man!! A must read story!! “Love has a way of not caring about complicated circumstances.” No words spoken were more true than this” Told in dual POV; be prepared this ends in a cliffhanger

To thine own self be true, - Eighty-one and counting
I am rating this duet separately. You will not be disappointed with this story. As Max turns to “Inamorata” a high scale buy a date service he asks for 81 days with Cait. He has been alone awhile in a marriage that was over before his wife’s accident...so he is being discreet. The propelling story between them is steamy hot and unfolds at a great pace...you just know there is something more to the evil sister-in-law, Blair who keeps inserting herself in his life. He has a baby that he did not father because he thought he was sterile and so keeps that a secret from his in-laws trying to reconcile that he will raise her even though she was born of infidelity. Ava Rose is raised by Nannies, he has very little to do with her. Of course Cait “Lou” bonds with the wee one and brings Max around to actually raising her as his own. So I was hoping for a lot of answers and spicy hot sex into the second book as well...this one was a 5 for me cause it had all my elements- semi hot alpha, chemistry, secrets and attraction.
alwaysdonna - Absolutely brilliant
I loved Hutch and Lou. Thank you Georgia for sharing this beautiful, sexy and intriguing story with all of us. Your stories are always great and the characters wonderfully relatable and amazing. I look forward to reading book 2.💋❤️🔥
Buffyanna - Enticing new couple!
A relationship that begins as a strictly contractual arrangement between Maxwell Hutcheson (“Hutch”) and Caitriona Louden (“Lou”) blossoms into a beautiful and deeply binding love story. Georgia Cates has promised that Eighty-One Nights incorporates elements of her previous works. Don’t be fooled into thinking that there’s nothing new to see. This book is amazing, an exceptional blending of both fresh and memorable ideas from Georgia’s glorious mind!
She gifts the reader with an enticing new couple. Hutch is a hot possessive Scottish alpha. Lou is a kind pragmatic American student. They are both saddled with too much family discord which would be better left in the past ... if only! At least, for the next eighty-one days and nights they have each other. Georgia doesn’t just tell us that they fall in love, she shows us with her outstanding word imagery and emotional poetry. I just love reading her books!
Many days after I have finished Eighty-One Nights and I can’t stop thinking about Hutch and Lou! All of Georgia’s 5 ⭐️ star books have had this effect on me - pulling me back when I think I am ready to move on! Bravo, Georgia! You have done it again!

Sandy Sch - Familiar but captivating
EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS is the first instalment in Georgie Cates’ contemporary, adult BEAUTIFUL ILLUSIONS erotic, romance duet focusing on thirty-three year old, Scottish businessman and widower Maxwell Hutcheson, and twenty-two year old, American student Caitriona ‘Lou’ Louden.
Told from dual first person points of view (Lou and Max) EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS follows the fake boyfriend/girlfriend arrangement between thirty-three year old, Scottish businessman Maxwell Hutcheson, and twenty-two year old, American student Caitriona ‘Lou’ Louden. Maxwell Hutcheson is looking for a companion but when his best friend Brady suggests the services of Inomorata, Maxwell never expected to fall in love. Enter American Caitriona Louden aka Lou, a young woman struggling to make ends meet, including the fees for her university tuition. What ensues is the building relationship and romance between Lou and Max, and the fall-out as Lou and Max’s time together comes to an end, an ending destroyed by betrayal and vengeance.
Caitriona Louden struggles with her ethics when her roommate Rachel suggests becoming an Inomorata woman, a for-hire girlfriend for rich men looking for temporary arrangements, and beautiful eye-candy. Meeting Maxwell Hutcheson finds our heroine slowly falling in love with a man whose former in-laws are unwilling to accept our heroine in his life. Targeted by more than one person willing to destroy her life, Cat is forced to walk away from the man with whom she is falling in love.
The relationship between Lou and Max is an arranged affair with an expiry date of eighty-one days. Never expecting to fall in love Lou is faced with heart break and betrayal before their time is up. The $ex scenes are intimate, erotic and passionate, without the use of over the top, sexually graphic language and text.
There is a large ensemble cast of colorful and secondary characters including Caitriona’s best friend and roommate Rachel; Max’s sister Sara, her husband Adam, as well as Max’s brother Ian Hutcheson. We are introduced to Inomorata’s chatelaine Coram her son Chambers, as well as Max’s former sister in law Blair.
If you are a fan of, or have read the author’s original BEAUTY series focusing on Jack Prescott and Laurelyn Prescott, you will notice the numerous similarities and recognizable premise to the current plot development of EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS. There is also a slight cross-over with the author’s BEAUTY series and the mention of the band Southern Ophelia. The author has been transparent with the parallel correlations calling it a fusion of her ‘old favorites and new material’. I welcomed the familiarity as I loved the BEAUTY series but I was also hoping for some deeper twists to the original plot line.
EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS is a familiar story of friendship, romance, heart break and love. There are moments of happiness and pain; revelations and acceptance; betrayal, vengeance, grief and loss. The premise is engaging, entertaining and captivating: the romance is seductive, provocative, and impassioned; the characters are energetic, bold and strong. EIGHTY-ONE NIGHTS end on a cliff-hanger, you have been warned.
sophiaamcdonald - What a cliffhanger!!
Can’t wait to read the next book.
Jaxwright57 - Wow
Eighty-One Nights is a beautifully written love story that will leave you wanting more it will leave you with all the feels you want and expect in a great read.
Caitriona Louden (Lou) is an American student living in Scotland, she moved to be with her father and his family but very quickly finds out she is going to have to fend for herself so she asks her roommate for advice and that’s when she finds herself at a club called Inamorata. This club is like no other it’s where audits find companionships and love......
Maxwell Hutchison (Hutch) is also introduced to Inamorata by a friend but when he is introduced to Lou he knows there is no going back he knows she is the one for him so he signs a contract to have her by his side for three months but will that be long enough for this couple .........
Companionship turns in to passion which then turns to love but secrets have a way of ruining a good thing could the secrets break or make this adorable couple guess you need to read the book to find that out. I knew this book would end on a cliffhanger but I really wasn’t prepared for the ending to Eighty One Nights I wanted to scream but the good thing is I understand part two in this duet is not too far away. I really need to know the conclusion to Hutch and Lou’s love story and I’m sure if you take a chance on this great read you will feel exactly the same.
Erin Lewis aka Maimeo's - Intriguing
Georgia Cates is a new author to me. I was intrigued when I read the blurb and thought it was a great opportunity to dive in to a new author. Be prepared you need to wait for book two to get the conclusions to their story.
Maxwell (Hutch) Hutcheson and Lou (Cait) have a contract, it is not a conventional contract but one where Hutch has hired Lou to be his girlfriend for 3 months. Hutch is a recent widow and is struggling and he wants someone to ease his loneliness which is where Lou enters. She has joined the dating service to help with her tuition fees.
Neither of them expect the connection which springs to life when they meet initially. Of course like all contracts there are terms to be agreed upon and lines to be drawn.
I was drawn to both these characters and Ms.Cates style of writing drew me in and kept me entertained throughout the story.
Hutch is drawn to Lou in ways that have never happened before and he wants to pursue these feelings. His past is sad and heart breaking so for him this is a giant step; the connection between them is real and he knows it could lead to more.
What will happen when their contract ends? We will have to wait and see.
